PORSCHE 935: The Porsche 935, was production based and was most suited to endurance racing. In 1976 at Mugello, drivers Jacki Ickx and Jochen Mass took the overall victory and the Porsche 935 took the 1976 Manufacturer's World Championship. Subsequent to the 935 Porsche developed the 935 'Baby' and the 935/78 'Moby Dick' which was the first Porsche to race with water cooled cylinder heads, the car was nicknamed 'Moby Dick'.
